Hello everyone we heard about this forum from the Diabetic Cats in Need Organization. We rescued a 10 year old black cat October of 2017. He was 23.5 lbs. We had parented cats before and knew he was overweight. We took him to a Veterinarian and she confirmed what we had feared. He has type 2 diabetes. We have been helping him loose weight, he's down to 15 lbs. He's on Vetsulin twice a day, 5 units. He's doing well is happy and playful. We are looking for ways to manage his Diabetes. We are hoping to get him to remission. Our last furry baby was 24 years young when she passed away. She had one kidney but lived a healthy and happy life. We're hoping to get sweet Mr. Bateman to good health.
